HONOR unveiled its revolutionary HONOR Gaming+ at Mobile World Congress 2019 (MWC 2019). HONOR Gaming+ consists of a series of technology updates to significantly increase the performance, graphics quality and image definition of mobile games on HONOR View20. HONOR has also announced an ecosystem of applications utilizing the 3D TOF (Time of Flight) camera that opens up a new era of AR (Augmented Reality) life, as well as the newly available HONOR Guard Fortnite skin for HONOR View20 users.
George Zhao, president of HONOR, said “We are moving one step closer to our goal of becoming one of the top five smartphone brands in the next three years. With the revolutionary HONOR Gaming+ technology, we have further enhanced the smartphone’s graphic performance, satisfying young consumers’ increasing demands for better mobile gaming experience. Together with the futuristic TOF 3D camera applications and the new Fortnite skin, HONOR is bringing consumers the most diverse and exceptional experiences.”
The brand-new Gaming+ improves SOC (State of Charge) energy efficiency by 20.34% . The upgraded driver for the Mali-G76 GPU chipset includes transcode optimization, which enhances job scheduling and parallel computing. In addition, the GPU works seamlessly with the innovative AI frequency modulation scheduling technology to predict task loads by monitoring frame rate per second (fps), image quality and touchscreen inputs in real time, and intelligently identifies performance bottlenecks. For gaming, the new AI technology improves the load prediction accuracy of each frame by more than 30% compared to traditional methods. Another key feature, CPU/GPU optimization, enhances image quality and reduces power consumption. The upgrade also brings high definition capability to gaming, achieving better contrast, higher brightness levels and a wider color palette.
HONOR collaborated with Epic Games, an American video game and software development company, to push the mobile gaming experience of Fortnite to new heights. As part of this collaboration, owners of HONOR View20 can avail exclusive access to the HONOR Guard outfit in Fortnite. The upgrade is also supportive of Fortnite Vulkan version on the HONOR View20, bringing gamers a faster and smoother experience . In addition, popular mobile games such as QQ Speed and Arena of Valor have been optimized to support the high definition feature. Gamers can now experience greater clarity and capture more details.
